About Terramor Farm:

Terramor Farm is a profitable small-scale farm located in Burnstown just 50 minutes west of Ottawa. We use bio-intensive farming practices and mostly hand tools to cultivate 3 acres of land. We produce over 30 varieties of high quality, organic vegetables as well as a 1/4 acre of cut-flowers for our +100 member CSA program, high-end restaurants and farmers markets. We have shaped our profitable small scale farm through investing heavily in education, employing the top contemporary growing techniques learned from online courses: Floret Farm (Erin Benzekein), Neversink Farm (Connor Crickmore) and The Market Gardener Masterclass (Jean Martin Fortier).
